In related news, negotiators for the potential coalition parties, the Civic Democrats, TOP 09 and Public Affairs, agreed on Tuesday that a massive clean-up tender should go ahead. Dubbed the contract of the century, the tender to clean up past environmental damage is worth 115 billion crowns, or about 5.8 billion US dollars. Negotiators for the three parties said on Tuesday that the bids should be evaluated by the end of the year; only then can the tender be cancelled or split into smaller parts. If the tender was cancelled now, the Czech Republic could face international arbitration, the negotiators said.
